The Annual MDS Bright Awards!
The Bright Awards are back for 2022! The Bright Awards are a celebration of secondary school students across Aotearoa who are bringing their creative craft to life.
For five years, the Bright Awards have provide an opportunity for creatives to showcase their hard work and support the first step towards carving a place for themselves in the industry. Media Design School wants to continue providing a creative outlet to help young creatives prove to themselves that they have what it takes to make a career out of what they love, and the means to reach those goals.
As a winner of a Bright Award from one of the categories, you will not only be recognised as one of New Zealand’s top young creative-talents-to-watch, you will also earn $1000 for yourself and $3000 for your school, with your school having the chance to earn the 'Bright School of the Year Award'.
Time to pull out all the stops, and show us what you create!
Entries open to Year 12 and Year 13 High School Students from Wednesday 10th August until Friday 7th October
